    Are you trying to make a copy of a file?

    Press and hold any file until it starts to wiggle, the touch the one you want to copy. An orange border indicates that it is selected, and the icons at the top of the screen change color. Touch the middle one with the plus sign and you will have a copy of your original.

    Just noticed you specified iPad 1. I'm using an iPad 2 on iOs5, but I assume the software will be the same. Good luck.

    I don't remember what version of Pages added the ability to create folders. You need to make sure you have the latest version of Pages, at least 1.4, preferably 1.5.

    Unless you are running iOS 5.0 or later you can not update to the newest version of Pages 1.5. There is not way to update to anything but the latest version.

    Are you on iOS 5, and have you updated Pages?
